My family and I stayed at Riad Aguerzame in Marrakech for a total of 6 nights and 7 days this May 2013. We were happy we decided to stay in a Riad rather than a hotel because it gave us a better feel of the Moroccan way of life. The rooms were all Moroccan in design and very clean and smelled very good. The staff were the best -- Aziz, Aziza and Leila --- all made us feel at home. They were very attentive to our needs and very helpful. Aziz would patiently give us directions around the medina and always managed to accommodate most of our requests. Their managers, Stephane and Serge, were likewise very courteous and fun to be with. Leilia, the cook, also came up with a sardine tagine to die for. It was a dish we all enjoyed.
The Riad was generally okay except for the following: 1) bathrooms were quite small, 2) drainage wasn't so good in the showers, 3) towels were old and too thin, 4) thrash cans in the bathrooms were too small and there were none in the rooms, 5) bedroom doors did not have locks but we felt very secure even without them and we did not lose anything during our stay, and 6) lack electrical outlets in the rooms.
The good things about the Riad are: 1) breakfast was plentiful and good especially the yogurt, 2) staff were very courteous, helpful and super nice and friendly, 3) all day shish, 4) nice rooftop terrace, 4) good location - walking distance from the souks, square, and major sites, 5) riad had an authentic Moroccan design, 6) hot water was very strong and plentiful in the bathrooms, and 7) its surrounding areas are quiet and safe.
I would recommend my friends and relatives to stay at Riad Aguerzame because of its excellent service and its authentic Moroccan feel.
